    It is difficult to tell a male from a female if you are not a trained bird vet.

    However if the area right above the beak has pinkish cast, it is probably a girl.  if it is blue or bluish, probably a male...but NOT guaranteed.

    The males are often a bit more vocal.

    The one in your profile picture seems to be male.

    It depends on what sort of parakeet. There are many different types of parakeets and therefore different ways of telling the sex of it. In budgerigars (one type of parakeet) the males have a blue cere and females have a brown cere. a males nose would be a blueish-purple color and a females nose would be a light brownish-pink color

    Male parakeets have a blue cere. Females have a brown cere. the cere is the fleshy part around the nostrils.
